Happy Returns



Wonderful, lovely birthday. Slim, being the consummate good sport, allowed himself to be dragged to not only the McQueen show at the Costume Institute, but to Beautiful Darling at IFC. (Look, it was raining.) Add to this cake with friends and steak with the family and you have the recipe for a great 30th.

But unquestionably, this was the highlight.

We had emerged at West 4th Street (for breakfast at Joseph Leonard) and unfurled our umbrellas when a middle-aged Indian man approached us and asked us wheedlingly, in turn, if we'd give him our umbrellas -- never mind that he looked perfectly capable of obtaining his own. We said no.

"But I'm the baby!" he said, oddly. "You have to take care of the baby!"


Happy birthday to me.

Hi Sadie,
I've never commented before, but I MUST ask -- what is the name of the book that the doll/bear photo comes from? I read it and loved it very much as a kid but I can't remember the title -- and it's driving me crazy.
Thanks!
Kathryn

What youre saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I also love the images you put in here. They fit so well with what youre trying to say. Im sure youll reach so many people with what youve got to say. Sbobet Bola Tangkas Prediksi Bola Tangkasnet Sbobet Casino Piala Eropa 2012 Score Bola

Nice, I had been following this blog for a jiffy but I didn't become aware of that you guys we're behind it. Some of the crew from there is really remarkable but they are lacking a demo link. More and more interest and involvement would definitely bump up the experience for me and in all probability many others.
